Like any baby, when they’re first born, you take photographs. Lots of photographs. Tens. Hundreds, Thousands. I’m not joking.
Especially when it’s your first child, you capture every moment. The first day, the first bath, the first sleep in the crib, smile, roll, etc. Something I also did was take a shot of Isabelle every single week while she was in the NICU, to see how big she was getting, and then every month in the nursery chair.
Sometimes, as mommy brain sets in, you forget these milestones or dates. Here’s where Belly Banter helps. Belly Banter is a company that makes monthly and milestone stickers for your babe. Continue reading
As everyone knows, I love to cook so when it came time to preparing food for my baby, I knew I wanted to make it myself. This way, I could control what sugars and preservatives my daughter was getting in her main meals.

I’m a crafty person. I love arts and crafts – I always have. When my best friend, Marliese, and I found this craft online, we decided we HAD to do it. So, our Friday night was spent making these! So super easy, affordable (cheap, really) and fun. We thought it would/could be fun to make this a tradition and do a plate each year. Here’s how you make a painted Christmas/Holiday dish: You will need: – porcelain plate – enamel paint (this is very important) – paintbrush or sponge – Sharpie markers – baby wipes We purchased the plates at … Continue reading
